What do new homeowners need to know about their air conditioner?

July 20, 2018

Being a first-time homeowner is very exciting and likely a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the house and the new responsibilities of having a home, there’s likely a lot on your mind as you settle into your new house.

That’s why Aggressive Mechanical wants to share some simple tips to be sure you understand your air conditioning system and how to keep it running smoothly throughout the summer season.

What do you need to know?

  1. Understand Your System—Assess the equipment itself to know the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be helpful if you have any concerns or challenges, need to look up the manual or call a technician for additional help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the greatest ways to save money on your utility bills is to watch the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be away from home. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can set a schedule during the week and not worry about always adjusting the temps. If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, you may want to consider buying one.
  3. Find a Qualified Technician—Even if you don’t need service or repair right away, it’s wise to have a technician or HVAC company chosen in case of an emergency. From regular maintenance to repairs, Aggressive Mechanical can help with all your air conditioner challenges or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We understand life gets busy, so it’s beneficial to set a reminder or make a note that your air filter should be swapped when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your AC work harder which shrinks efficiency and raises your energy costs.
